Thanks to nerd for breaking out all 3 BA Papier's!

Pours a muddled brown color, pretty much flat, some bubbles here and there. Nose is smooth whiskey and lots of sweetness in the form of burnt sugars, caramel, molasses. Flavor is a perfect mix of booze & sweetness. As with the nose, the flavor is all smooth whiskey and burnt sugars, caramel, oak, and vanilla. Medium body, light carbonation, sweet finish.

This basically drinks like a mix between a port & straight booze, similar to Utopias. This is my favorite variant of the three, and I'd love to have this one again. Something to really sip on over a long period of time and enjoy. Excellent stuff!
